An X-ray tomographic picture of fossil thread-like red algae, tinted to show detail, unearthed in central India may represent the oldest-known plants on Earth, dating from 1.6 billion years ago, according to research published in the journal PLOS Biology in this image released March 13, 2017.

A newly discovered fossil suggests plants are hundreds of millions of years older than we thought

Un articolo pubblicato sulla rivista "PLOS Biology" descrive lo studio di due tipi di fossili vegetali scoperti in India datati 1,6 miliardi di anni. Un team del Museo Svedese di Storia Naturale guidato da Stefan Bengtson ha studiato queste due specie diverse che assomigliano alle alghe rosse chiamandole Rafatazmia chitrakootensis e Ramathallus lobatus.

Idioma es una barrera para visibilizar la ciencia. De un vistazo: *Inglés se posiciona como lenguaje de la ciencia, pero para quienes no lo hablan es un problema. *Pero investigaciones en otros idiomas tienen muy poca visibilidad. *Investigadores proponen una serie de medidas para ayudar a superar el problema. La investigación, publicada en la revista PLOS Biology, destaca el problema que algunos científicos de diferentes lugares del mundo enfrentan por este motivo.

Today we tackle viruses! Did you know many emerging infectious diseases are a problem for people because they crossed over from a different host organism? Even though switching hosts sounds problematic for a virus--they need to adapt to a new environment and immune system--turns out they do it pretty often! We break down a new paper about viral evolution in PLoS Pathogens in our latest infographic (link in bio). --------------------------------- #virus #microbiology #research #sick #viral…

Developers of an experimental blood test for autism say it can detect the condition in more than 96 percent of cases and do so across a broad spectrum of patients, potentially allowing for earlier diagnosis, according to a study. The findings, published in PLoS Computational Biology, are the latest effort…
